this is the world he exists in. and he's online a lot. >> mike rogers is a former fbi agent, chairman of the house intelligence committee. for him to suggest that snowden may have been an agent working for russian intelligence from the very beginning, he must have some inkling of evidence to back that up, i suspect? >> yeah, that's why i think it's important -- this is someone with a very important title who's making these allegations. and he talked about clues, unspecified clues. i called his office to see if i could get him to explain a little bit more and he didn't want to discuss it. he wouldn't comment further. but what he is saying is not only denied by snowden, it also is contradicted by several investigations, the fbi's been investigating and the nsa's been investigating. and the cia has been investigating. they've all been looking for the possibility that snowden's working with foreign governments. and at the moment, none of them have found evidence. >> were you surprised that dianne feinstein sort of said, i can't rule that out?
want to ask you a question between the balance of liberty and security. >> fbi will say we have limited resources and personnel. there are national security threats, should some liberties be compromised for the great are good. generally we are a little too willing to trade the liberty of others for what we perceive to be in our safety interest. the situation here is that the no fly list has gross and despicable consequences. people placed on the lists can also never be charged with crimes. a former air force veteran tried to fly home to visit his mother. he was prevented from doing so. before he was allowed to fly. even though he had sent the fbi a copy of his itinerary saying if they wanted to search him, they were more than happy to, they visited his terminally ill mother to search for prohibited drugs. when he flew home, he corrected signatures, when he tried to fly back they wouldn't let him. we sent the fbi a letter saying this is when he's going to fly, it you'd like to search him extra go ahead. instead he had a take a bus to mexico, a flight to south america, before getting back

on the irs and now they are taking on the fbi. that is because the fbi will not file criminal charges over the irs targeted scandal. investigators did not find the political bias or enemy hunting that would violate the criminal law. the tea party is furious and one leader will go on the record in a few minutes. first back to carl. irs not criminal according to the fbi? >> that is not accurate. read that story carefully. the fbi first of all does not have a habit of commenting on on going investigations. they just don't. you notice in the "wall street journal" piece, it is law enforcement officials. they don't say officials at the bureau. they don't say fbi agents. they say law enforcement officials. that's broad enough to cover the u.s. attorney's office, the department of justice, the department of justice criminal division. last week, literally within the last week, five days ago, the new director of the fbi said this is an on going investigation. it is important to us. i doubt within a matter of days what he said was an important on going investigation has come to a conclusion. they wil
party had to take on the irs of. now they are taking on the fbi. that's because the fbi will reportedly not file any criminal charges over the irs targeting scandal. according to the "wall street journal," investigators did not find the kind of political bias or enemy hunting that would violate criminal law. the tea party though, of course, is absolutely furious. one leader will go on the record in just a few minutes. first, back to karl. irs not criminal according to the fbi? >> well, not according to the the fbi. that's not accurate. what's interesting to me is read that story carefully. the fbi, first of all, does not have a habit of commenting on ongoing investigations. they just don't. you will notice in the "wall street journal" piece, excellent piece of reporting, it is law enforcement officials. they don't say officials at the bureau. they will don't say fbi agents. leaders of the fbi. they say law enforcement officials. that's broad enough to cover the u.s. attorney's office, the department of justice, the department of justice criminal division. so, you know, last week, litera
take up the national security letters. we do not talk as much about them. using them, the fbi can obtain detailed information about individuals communications records and financial transactions without additional approval. the recipients of national security letters are subject to permanent gag orders. senator durbin and i propose additional safeguards on this controversial authority for years to limit the use and make sure that recipients of national security letters have an opportunity for judicial review. something that most americans think already exists. it would change the way national security letter operates -- letters operates. . i think that we have to look at it. report wants to create an institutional public service advocate. i strongly support that proposal and i am concerned that merely allowing the fisa court to participate in time to time will publicrove nor rebuild product -- confidence in the process. if you think about it, we are having a debate about americans fundamental relationship with their government. the government exists for americans and not the other

't a feature in any of the snowden leaks, involved the f.b.i.'s issuance of national security letters, which are demands in national security communication tozz turn over basic information. these are done without perspective judicious review and they are done at a very low level of the bureau. they are quite controversial. they have nothing to do with the snowden leaks. and the review level, i think it was the second recommendation quite high up in the review group reports said this stuff needs to be subject to prospective judicial review. this did not go over well at the f.b.i. and the f.b.i., unlike the 215 program, a few hundred queries a year, this is thousands and thousands and thousands of requests. so this is really part of the daily bread and butter of f.b.i. there was a real interagency squabble over this, and the bureau won. and the president actually sounded a lot like -- in his speech sound aid fair bit like the f.b.i. director did in a discussion that the "new york times" reported on or some other media reported on a few weeks ago and basically said it shouldn't be harder to get

up reform to the national security letter statutes. using them, the fbi can obtain detailed information about communication records and financial transactions. the thing that is troubling to many is the recipients are subject to permanent gag orders. senator durbin and i have been trying to impose additional safeguards on this controversial authority for years, to limit their use and to ensure that the gag orders comply with the amendment and to provide recipients with a meaningful opportunity for judicial review, something that most americans would assume already exist. series ofhas a important recommendations that change the way national security letters operate. we have not seen as much about these recommendations, and the press is not generated as much attention, but they should. we have to look at it. the report also recommends creating an institutional public interest advocate at the fifa court. i strongly support the proposal. the stakes are high. you think about it, we are really having a debate about americans fundamental relationship with her own government. the go

today, new reports that the fbi is not plan ing to file criminal charges related to the irs scandal. according to "wall street journal," fbi investigators blame confusing rules, and bureaucratic incompetance for irs targets of conservative groups rather than criminal intent, that report infuriated house republicans who pointed out the case is still being investigated. house oversight chairman darrell issa wrote in a letter to tern general, anonymous and politically motivated leaks from unnamed law enforcement official undermine public apure anes by current and former fbi directors is this is a legitimate investigation, the leaks come after the justice department citing the confidential nature of the investigation refused too brief congress on its progress. investigator also discovered that person leading the fbi, investigation, department of justice attorney barbara bosser man donated more than 6,000-dollars to president obama's campaign. the president, held his first cabinet meeting of the year. he said he would not wait for congress to advance his agenda. i've got a pen, and a cal
with the investigation were killed. and that's increased the fbi's difficulty in investigating what happened here. the fbi has jurisdiction over the death of americans, american officials in other countries. not only has the libyan government been a problematic force in the fbi conducting of this investigation, mysteriously 15 people connected to the investigation have died. the report does not specify if they were killed in connection to this investigation or due to just worsening security conditions in libya. >> let's take this on. the administration, and specifically national security adviser susan rice heavily criticized for the response to this attack. people alleged that they withheld information, a. investigations, did the report give us any insight into that aspect of the story? >> reporter: right, following the bengahzi attack susan rice made a number of statements based on talking points that went through a series of drafts through the white house and the intelligence community. the republicans were incredibly hostile towards rice, alleging that she had toned down they are comments in o
of justice is facing a major backlash after revealing that fbi officials found no evidence warranting criminal charges in the irs targeting scandal. now, needless to say the groups who were unfairly attacked by the agency were outraged. and now we received information from the justice group. they are targeting 41 of the agents, and they saint is mindboggling how they can conclude that no charges will be brought against these people, those who faced the illegal actions by the irs have never been interviewed by the fbi. this quote says, tea party patriots nor attorneys have ever been contacted by the fbi regarding an investigation. now, one of the first steps in a possible criminal investigation is to contact the victim of the said crime. how can the fbi prevent to be thorough without actually talking to us. here with us, tucker carlson, and fox political analyst, juan williams, juan, we know for a fact that a number of conservative groups were targeted. that is not in dispute. if they're going to have an investigation don't you actually need to talk to the victims and let them tell you
the law lightly or go after the fbi lightly if you have three children under 10, as we did. >> they were convinced that the fbi was spying on those protesting against government policy and joined others to find proof. bonny raines was given the job of casing an fbi office to break in and see if they could steal the proof. she posed as a student. >> they didn't notice i never took my gloves off. >> activists broke in to an office behind me, hoping that the agents inside were too distracted by a jo fraser-mohammed ali tightal bout. the documents was a revelation. the fbi was satisfying and destroying and blackmailing martin luther king into committing suicide. for the rains, the reforms following the break-in were undone after 9/11. >> an important document we got from the fbi said clearly, "we want to increase the paranoia that is endemic to these folks and persuade them that there is an fbi behind every mailbox", that's not surveillance, that's intimidation. the purpose was to stop decent. the same thing is going on now. massive surveillance across the country. and the purpose of that is
after going out for a walk. why the fbi is involved. >> we are devastated. we are desperate and we are heart-broken. and in agony. we just want david back home. we just want david back home. life could be hectic. as a working mom of two young boys angie's list saves me a lot of time. after reading all the reviews i know i'm making the right choice. online or on the phone, we help you hire right the first time. with honest reviews on over 720 local services. keeping up with these two is more than a full time job, and i don't have time for unreliable companies. angie's list definitely saves me time and money. for over 18 years we've helped people take care of the things that matter most. join today. it says here that a woman's sex drive. increases the age of 80. helps reduce the risk of heartisease. it seems that 80 is the new 18. grannies, bless your heart, you are bringing sexy back! eat up. keep heart-healthy. live long. for a healthy heart, eat the 100% natural whole grain goodness opost shredded wheat. doctors recommend it. female announcer: female announcer: get beautyrest, po
the agencies, then one of them, the fbi, could have gone to the fisa court and could have in a very timely manner gotten a warrant to monitor the appropriate telephones. they didn't because they were unaware of the information that existed elsewhere in the government at the time. but there was a period of over two years where that information was available. so it would have been possible in a very timely manner to get a warrant from the fisa court. >> wasn't that one of the things that the senator graham and his review committee found, that it was a sharing? >> that's exactly right. the joint committee. the two intelligence committees of the house and senate found that the information was in the government at the time. it just wasn't shared. >> thank you. now, i raise the issue of national security letters or nsls. and as you know, for those who are not familiar, they permit the government to obtain certain communications and financial and credit report records without a court order. also, as i raise, the fbi can impose a virtually permanent, permanent gag order on nsl recipients. number o
charges that exploded into public view when revealed the fbi had been secretly wiretapping the governor's home and office phones. the fbi discovered blagojevich was promising state funding to a children's hospital only if a top executive at that hospital donated $50,000 to his campaign. also extorting the media by promising favorable business deals to newspaper companies only if they companies fired specific journalists. and, of course, most famously, trying to sell a united states senate seat. specifically the one that had been vacated by a man named barack obama when he had to go be president. the charges against rod blagojevich were enough to make a hardened fbi agent, an agent from the chicago office of the fbi, marvel at the new low for illinois. >> i can tell you one thing. if it isn't the most corrupt state in the united states, it's certainly one hell of a competitor. this wiretap, i can tell you from the fbi agents that participated in this wiretap investigation, we're thoroughly disgusted and revolted by what they heard. >> governor blagojevich has been arrested in the middle
at work. tonight, see who stepped up to delay the affordable care act again. >>> also, the fbi joining the search for a missing wall street journal reporter. they're looking at activity he had on his computer, on his phone, and at work. his family holding out hope. days ago, he went for a walk near his new jersey home. fox reports on the latest on the efforts to find the journalist who has not been seen since. >>> and a very crowded church. as clergy deal with long lines of parents and their newborns for a mass blessing. >>> so we begin with a new good lay in the rollout of the affordable care act/obamacare. the president's signature law. this time, the snafu deals with a mandate which requires companies treat all employees equally. no special packages offered for different levels within a company. this is just the latest in what has been a series of temporary suspensions coming from the obama administration when it comes to the law's implementation. as you probably already know, the white house has suspended the employer mandate until next year, and enrollment deadlines have already b
her diary as a real document created at that time, submit it to fbi inspection to see if they can time-date exactly when that diary was done. if that diary by fbi evidence inspectors in any way seems to not have been created on that date, the price she will pay is going to prison. i mean, you kind of didn't get into detail about it in the way you just explained it, but lying to the fbi and the fbi is in the room when you're talking to the federal prosecutors, lying to them gets you prison. >> right. >> so she -- we would have to think for her to be lying outright about this, that she was -- she's willing to risk going to federal prison to tell you that lie on saturday morning on television and to show those diaries to you and then as she has now done, we now know, submit those diaries to the fbi and they now have custody of them to examine -- i mean, it's an extraordinary thing to see her do. we'd have to think she's outright crazy to do this if she thought there's any risk of the fbi finding she's not telling the truth. >> no, exactly. and it gets to basically when we were looking at

go with the so-called national security letters issued by the fbi to the communications companies requesting information without any sort of judicial review? will there be constraints on that as well? and back to the metadata collection, will there be review for when they two to the secret court, the court that hears law enforcement in the intelligence community. their request for intelligence warrants the tools that they need to fight terrorism and law enforcement. the advocate on that, the privacy advocate that speaks up for the public's right to privacy. and overall, the president expected to emphasize the need for further transparency, and the overriding theme, as the technology advances by leaps and bounds, del, and allows the intelligence community in the united states to do things that are unprecedented and surprising to a lot of people, do the protocols and the practices keep up with the privacy that many people expect and believe is their right, not only in the united states, but it's one of the many questions here, not only in the united states, but overseas as well. and
victory of the f.b.i. and the justice department on the matter of national security letters. on 215, this is presumed the multion core of the political dwafmente it is the moulten cower that faces the civil liberties community. which is to say, this is a comprehensive collection program, but it is a comprehensive collection program aimed at a very narrow category of data. which is to say metadata. so its capacity to either do great good, as bruce describes, or frankcally,ing to do terrible damage in the civil liberties arena, is actually much less than either collection under 702, which i'll come to in a minute or section 703, it is not that broad-based a program in terms of what gets collected and analyzed and how. so what the president did here, he basically adopted in a limited sort of way, the review group recommendation, which is to say, moved the program outside of government and allow it to be queried with an order of the fisa court. the problem is, that's actually very easy to say and very hard to do. so what he did, which it's clever, and the question is if it is too clever
from the fbi asking for data. the president asks for transparency but outlining the reason he don't want to have any more steps, as expected the president is putting forward not just one but a panel of advocates on that fisa court, public advocates to stand up for the american's public's right to privacy when the american intelligence community comes to them. overall, the president offering astout defense for the american intelligence apparatus and those working there. pointing out there are no abuses, no intentional abuses while at the same time, saying attacks have been prevented. he said at the outset of the speech del however he wasn't speaking specifically about the 215 program the metadata collection program, and a federal judge in washington issued a stay of the program just recently, said there have been no evidence of any attacks being prevented. technological regulations that oversee that technology and the surveillance programs enabled by the technology need to be reviewed del. >> mike viqueria at the white house, now 2012:02 eastern time. if you have been listening in
collected under section 702. in investigating threats, the fbi also relies on what is called national security threats letters which requires companies to supply limited information without disclosing orders to the subject of the investigation. these are cases in which it is important that the subject of the investigation, such as a possible terrorist or spy, is not tipped off. we can and should be more transparent and how government uses this authority. i, therefore, directed the attorney general to amend how we use national security letters so that this secrecy will not be indefinite. so that it will terminate within a fixed time unless the government demonstrates a real need for further secrecy. we will also enable communications providers to make public more information than ever before about the orders they have received to provide data to the government. this brings me to the program that has generated the most controversy these past months. the bulk election of telephone collection of telephone records under section 215. let me repeat what i said when this story first broke. th
from the sheriff's office, the fbi and dublin pd left here in a caravan. the overall investigation far from over. the investigation continues into the night. the sheriff's office mobile crime lab, fbi, and dublin police, all trying to figure out what went wrong out here. a spokesman says it happened about 2:00 when a number of b.a.r.t. police officers moved in to do a probation search of an apartment. >> they went into an apartment, and it was during that search that one officer fired his weapon, which fatally struck another officer inside of the apartment. >> reporter: dead is 42-year-old thomas smith. a 20-year veteran of the department, shown here at a recent press conference. the person on probation who lives at the apartment was not home. in fact, in custody. and b.a.r.t. officers knew that, but they were not sure if anyone else was inside the apartment, which is why wearing bullet proof vests, they kicked open the door. >> when you're on probation, you basically are let out of jail and it says hey, i agree to let my person, car, home be searched at any time. >> reporter: it's bel
question tar is the former head of the fbi terrorist monitoring center. and the lead attorney for the woman who just won her no fly case. elizabeth her casing went on for more than eight years cost more than $4 million, and required 11,000 hours of work on the part of attorneys. your firm handled this pro bono. why get involved in this case? >> because it was the right thing to do. when we found out what had happened to the doctor, we saw the injustice and felt the need to take this on. >> let's get the lay of the land here. marty talk to us about why the no-fly list was created and when it was created. >> sure. no-fly list was created in 2003 by a presidential directive. it was the result of what hand at 9/11. prior to 9/11, there were 11 different agencies that maintained their own version of a. watch list. most of those watch lists had no interoperability. one agency could not determine what was on another agency's watch list without actually calling them up and running the name. it -- it did not work. all thes notable, local and state police agencies had no access whatsoever to any of t
the fbi ever talk to you before they made this decision this week? >> no, sean, we never were contacted by the fbi, no one asked us a question. >> what is your reaction, if they don't talk to the people that were victims of this, and there were no criminal charges, what's your rea action? a great injustice is what it seems to me. >> let me just say the irs agents that we dealt with here in -- we have no problems with these agents, their outstanding americans and they're just under orders from somebody on high, so when we talk about the irs, i want people to understand there are a lot of good, american people that served in that agency and i just don't want to smear them, but there's something wrong with the administration is using the irs to target the billy graham evangelistic organization and other organizations because of our beliefs and what we stand for. and we both received notification on the same day in 2012 in september, telling us that our tax statements for that year were going to -- or excuse me, for 2010 were going to be reviewed. it's not coincidence that they received le
for a walk in the woods, but never returns. the fbi is on the case and we'll give you the latest in the search. >>> and it may not have seemed like it, but there was plenty of room to roam the mall this past holiday season. many shoppers, they said, staying away from the stores. we will explain what is behind this new trend. >>> and that trend could affect you. more on that later with brenda butner. but first, another obamacare delay this day. this one putting the brakes on a key provision of the law that was support discriminators from discriminating against lesser making employees. peter ducey, making his way up to that top executive branch is live in washington with more. hi, peter. >> hi, jamie. this is the latest delay to a regulation that was written into the affordable care act to basically level the playing field by requiring companies to provide the same benefits to entry level employees that they provide to the executives. this was first from the "new york times" and to a provision that was supposed to kick in shortly after the president signed this bill into law back i
the fbi can obtain detailed information about individuals' communication records and financial transactions and credit reports. do that without judicial approval but the thing that's troubling to many is the recipients of nsls are subject to permanent gag orders. we're fighting for additional safeguards on this controversial authority for years. to limit the use. to ensure that nsl gag orders comply with the first amendment. and to provide recipients of nsl was a meaningful opportunity for judicial review. something that most americans would assume already exists. and the review group makes a series of important recommendations to change the way national security letters operate. we haven't seen as much about these recommendations in the press vice president generated that much -- as much attention but they should. and i think that we have to look at it. and the report also recommends creating an institutional public interest advocate at the fisa court. i strongly support that proposal. i'm concerned that merely allowing to participate in the fisa court from time to time will n
of investigations director, fbi director, j. edgar hoover, is widely reported to have a personal animosity, bordering on obsession with king. and despite king's philosophy of nonviolence, hoover feared he had become a so-called messiah, that would galvanize a movement of militant black nationalism. shortly after king criticized the fbi for failing to protect activists and black citizens, he became a prime target for the fbi's covert domestic intelligence program, more commonly known as cointell pro. according to fbi archival documents, from late 1963 and continuing until the assassination of dr. martin luther king jr., king was the target of an intensive campaign by the fbi to neutralize him as an effective civil rights leader. in the war against king, no holds were barred. the fbi's relentless service of king sought to embarrass and discredit him and to neutralize the power of the southern christian leadership conference. king was subjected to investigations of his inner circle, wiretaps, and monitoring to expose alleged communist activities. in one instance, he was sent a tape-recorded c
-mailed the fbi private affairs office, e-mail people i know, went online and was looking and what i found was an interesting speech done by a high level pentagon official at a conference of fertilizer companies where he was urging the fertilizer companies to come together in the elimination of the sale of calcium ammonia nitrate which is a fertilizer. i will call it c.a.n. it is responsible for 80% of the ied's explodes in afghanistan. so the government says let's eliminate the use of this and the export and trade it in. and we are going to solve the problem. like they are not going to go and make bombs out of something else. so i thought okay. big databases. peoples. problems in afghanistan. it is all coming back to vermont. who sells calcouium ammonia nitrate in vermont. i am on the internet looking. and i am thinking someone knows what i am doing research on now. because part of their protocol is if someone is spending 20 minutes online looking for 50 pounds or more of calcium amm i ammonia nitrate they must be sus suspicio suspicious. and there is one company in milton that sells it.
to the black sea, in case americans need to be evacuated. the games begin on february 7th. and an fbi source tells cbs news the russians are cooperating more, providing more intelligence about the suspected attacks. an fbi source said about three dozen fbi personnel will be there for the games. anne-marie. >> susan mcginnis in washington, thank you, susan. >>> russia's foreign minister is urging the european government not to interfere in ukraine where more anti-government protests took place overnight. demonstrators in the capital of kiev tossed fire bombs and stones. police responded with tear gas and rubber bullets. dozens of people have been injured since the protests began months ago, when the government decided against joining a trade pact with europe. >>> and it appears the syria peace conference is back on track again this morning in montreux, switzerland. u.n. chief ban ki-moon has withdrawn an unexpected invitation to iran. the last-minute invitation infuriated syrian opposition leaders who threatened to skip the talks. the russians say not having the iranians is a mistake but not
helping the fbi investigation, they have been killed. the committee's report says it's not clear if the killings have anything to do with the investigation. so they're looking into that. the attack back in 2012 on the diplomatic compound as you recall, left four americans dead, including the am bass core. i want to bring in our cnn justice reporter, evan perez. give us a sense of what we're learning here about these 15 people. what was their role? >> well, suzanne, it's -- these are people who the fbi has tried to use to provide information, to try to figure out what happened on the -- during the attacks in the benghazi consulate and annex there. as you know, the fbi had trouble getting in there in the first place, just took them a couple weeks to even be able to get on the ground. and one of the difficulties has been that the libyan government does not control much of its own territory, including benghazi. a lot of militias in charge there. and we know that since those attacks in the past year, for instance, there have been hundreds of these attacks, there have been dozens of as
have when the fbi wants to come against them with a criminal warrant. >> chris? >> agents of a foreign power is a slightly ridiculous thing to say. what you have is a nonadversarial process. the difference between the fbi going to get a warrant in a regular court and the fisa court is the fisa court is entirely secret, we don't know who sits on it, none of its proceedings are open, there's no appealability, right? if you have a bad warrant process that happens in a open court, the defendant later at trial has a whole set of appeals they could contest. that doesn't currently exist, so to compare the two is preposterous and i suspect michael hayden knows that. the other thing, the power of the advocate is going to depend on the institutional culture of the fisa court. remember, when the fisa court was created, the idea was that it wouldn't be a rubber stamp, but what has it become? entirely rubber stamped. we know they basically don't ever reject warrants in decades and decades, they never do. it's totally possible you have an advocate in there and the same kind of process ends up where
